Dakar is the most populated city in Senegal where people from different backgrounds and with different attitudes, behaviors, cultures and education meet. How can difficulties in terms of mobility planning and management be tackled ?


Overview of the project

4V ” Ville verte, Vie Verte ” is a project being implemented in the Dakar region.
According to the yearbook of the population of Senegal, year 2021, the ANSD affirms that the region of Dakar alone concentrates a population of 3,938,362 or 22.88% of the national population which is 17,215,433. In the same document, it is noted that Dakar is the smallest region in terms of area with 547 km2, or 0.2% of the country’s area of 196,712 km2. Being the most populated city in Senegal with a density of 7,200 inhabitants per km2 and where people from different backgrounds and with different attitudes, behaviors, cultures and education meet, how can this region not encounter difficulties in terms of planning and mobility management?
It is this desire to provide solutions to this problem that has led us to set up this project.

Our initiative consists in:

  1. Collaborate with state authorities in charge of land use planning, transport and citizenship and with civil society, in order to discuss the problems and propose solutions.
  2. Put in place an action plan developed by all identified actors,
  3. Set up committees composed of youth, resource persons, local authorities and the SCU for the implementation and monitoring of activities,
  4. Organize awareness sessions and training on household waste management,
  5. Collaborate with the water and forestry services to reforest areas that will be identified beforehand. Among our initiatives, a plea will be made to get the old cars out of the urban traffic circuit and to replace these worn out cars by others.

Designing the city and making it beautiful through green spaces for easy and sustainable mobility.
